Barbados 367 for 8 (Campbell 81, Smith 114) lead Guyana 310 (Sarwan 121, Chanderpaul 81; Collins 4-85) by 57 runs
Barbados snatched a slender lead over Guyana thanks mainly to Dwayne Smith (114) and Sherwin Campbell (91). Barbados began the third day on 138 for 3 with plenty of work left to be done.
Initially it was Ryan Hinds (56) and Campbell who took Barbados forward. They added 105 runs for the fourth wicket, before Hinds was caught by Vishal Nagamootoo off the bowling of Rayon Griffith (155 for 4). The next man to go was Campbell. He fell nine runs short of the three-figure mark, caught by Ryan Ramdass off Travis Dowlin (215 for 5).
From then on, it was only Smith who kept Barbados ticking. His 114 at number six gave the team just the impetus they needed, and he only fell after the first innings lead was secured. Mahendra Nagamootoo claimed Smith's wicket, caught by Narsingh Deonarine. By this stage Barbados had a 10-run lead.
Ian Bradshaw made his presence felt with a timely 33 low down the order and Barbados finished the day on 367 for 8.
